Almost 50 bikesharing stations now exist in Montgomery County alone

The Division of Transit Services's Commuter Services section continues to host a series of community events at Capital Bikeshare locations in Silver Spring in an effort to encourage and promote the bikeshare system to residents, businesses and employees. The campaign is designed to showcase bikeshare station locations, demonstrate how the system works and encourage memberships. Additionally, MCCS wants to encourage local companies to promote the bikeshare program by offering them bulk or corporate memberships.

The following events in Silver Spring are free and open to the public:

• Wednesday, June 25, 5 – 7 p.m. - Silver Spring Metro Station
• Thursday, June 26, 3 – 7 p.m. - 13th Street and Eastern Avenue
• Friday June 27, 1 – 5 p.m. - Fenton Street and New York Avenue

Capital Bikeshare offers a simple, low cost and reliable way to travel throughout the region. It gives members access to thousands of bikes at hundreds of locations in Montgomery County, D.C., Arlington and Alexandria. Individuals are encouraged to use Capital Bikeshare to travel to and from transit, work or school, as well as for recreation. Businesses and corporations are urged to join as corporate partners and provide discounted memberships to interested employees as part of their own health and green initiatives.

For more information on the program, contact Commuter Services at 240-777-8380 or visit MCDOT's Bikesharing website.
